NEW YORK — The longtime leader of New York City’s largest police union has been re-elected after drawing national attention for clashing with the mayor.

Four-term Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch faced a challenge from trustee Brian Fusco, who conceded Friday.

Lynch was first elected president of the 24,000-member union in 1999. He became a national figure during a public fight with Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH’-zee-oh) last winter after a grand jury declined to indict an officer in the chokehold death of unarmed Eric Garner.

When two police officers were killed weeks later, Lynch said there was “blood on the hands” of the mayor, suggesting he had given anti-police protests too much leeway.

Tensions have since cooled.

The PBA remains the lone police union without a contract. It’s in arbitration.
